“Perfection in Paradise ... Really!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2010

Perfect! Our stay at NWPR could not have been any better. From the warm and inviting pool, to the very relaxing hot tub, it's merely just a few steps away to the well groomed sandy beach. The beauty and peacefulness at NWPR, combined with Mike and his very attentive staff, makes this resort the best vacation destination anyone could want for a family friendly holiday. This is our second visit to NWPR and have also recommended it highly to friends. We would definitely stay here again and again ...

I spend a fabulous week at Northwest Point with my husband and 3 little boys in March.

Lodging/Eating
We rented a 2 bedroom condo with a full kitchen and balcony. The apartment was excellent - the 2 bathrooms were great with the kids, and the resort provided a crib for our baby. We ate most meals in, which reduced our stress levels greatly vs eating all meals out with a 1, 3 and 4 year old. We went to the IGA for a big shopping trip, then made a couple of trips to town for fresh fish and lobsters (about a 15 min drive). The kitchen was well appointed with a good coffee maker, blender, whisk, colander, platters and even a few condiments - all the necessary items you'd need for a week's stay.

The entire resort has free, strong wireless internet - everywhere. This is such a treat that a) its free and b) its everywhere (all condos, pool, and probably the beach). So: put your iPhone on airport mode and check your emails via the wireless.

The resort had a grill for all to use, which was easy and fun especially when there were other guests to chat with. We could easily hop back to the room for snacks, towels, drinks from the pool/beach - and no one gave you the stink eye when you brought your own food/drinks around the resort. There is a little restaurant next to the pool where we bought happy hour drinks and the BEST conch fritters in the afternoons. We saw many other guests eating there, but I cannot say how it was - all I can say is the conch fritters are excellent.

Pool/Beach/general resort
We loved this place bc it was so remote and "non-commercial". At times there were no people on the beautiful beach and sometimes there were 20-30 people - and it still felt like a private beach. They had lot of sand toys for the kids, as well as kayaks, snorkeling equipment, air rafts and other stuff for everyone to use (no extra costs!) As a mom, I felt the place was super safe and small enough that even if the kids ran off, I had a general idea where they were and far from any danger (cliffs, cars, strangers, etc).

The pool is beautiful and the hot tub was so fun for adults and kid alike. The shallow end was shallow enough for my 3 year old to practice swimming while still being able to touch the bottom with his toes - great confidence booster. There were comfy lawn chairs and towels, tables and chairs for all to use.

I would definitely return for a trip here with the children (or even adults only). I loved the remoteness of the resort vs beautiful but built-up grace bay. It was fun to take a trip "off campus" once a day or every 2 days for a meal or a trip to the fish mongers. There was everything we needed for our week there - Mike and GM and Peter the property manager were so helpful with all details and info for the island. There is even a little lending library at the front desk. It seemed that many of the guests were owners of their condos and were vacationing in their places. This gave the place more of a "home" feel vs a huge, commercial resort, where they're always trying to sell you stuff (beach umbrellas, only 2 towels per person, etc). The general size of the resort is perfect - not too big, but also not to small. You can be very along if you'd like, or you can meet and be with the other guests.

We can't wait to go back.

My husband and I travelled with our 5 children (ages6,7,13,14and 17) to the resort, and stayed for a week. The kids loved the kayaks, the pool, the hot tub, the gekos, and the beach. What we, Mom and Dad, loved was that the suite had a full kitchen to cook all our meals in. The resort is too far away to eat out all the time, and it would have been really expensive for us to do so. Cooking for ourselves was great. We loved being able to walk along the beach for miles, put on our snorkel equipment and check out the reefs at any spot along the walk and almost always see great stuff. We did find one spectacular reef that we went back to a couple times. The rental vehicle that was provided for us made this trip really fabulous - it allowed us to go "into town" anytime we wanted, and we did.
The resort staff were great, kind and helpful. We were told the resort was full, but we never had issues with beach loungers, and the kids often had the pool to themselves.
We will stay here again. It worked for us - we are a family that likes to have adventure and do things for ourselves, so this was a perfect situation. If you want a holiday where you will get pampered at your every whim, this is not the place for you. We loved it!

The resort is very well kept, the staff were friendly and helpful, and we enjoyed ourselves immensely! It's in an isolated area so it's great for rest and relaxation. I would recommend stopping by the IGA because once you get to the resort, there is only one
place to get food and it's a limited menu. The unit we stayed in had a kitchen (I think all of them do) so we cooked a lot. I highly recommend this resort.

We spent one week (Wed-Wed) in Condo 104. One bedroom gardenview. From our room you could see the sea in the distance. Since the breeze blows off the water, we did not have the luxury of open windows and sea breezes and did use the AC at night. The condo was well equipped for cooking. Stove, dishwsher, blender, coffemaker, toaster, microwave, plenty of silverware, glasses, pots/pans and dishes. We made most of our meals either in the kitchen or out on the grill by the restaurant. We vacuum packed frozen meats and brought them with us in a collapsible cooler in our luggge. Food is expensive there. (ribeye steaks $16.99/lb, a bottle of Ragu 5.29) The washer and dryer was great to have. (check the lint filter) Pack the Purex 3 in 1 sheets, they worked well and are light weight in the luggage. No need to bring alot of clothes when you can throw in a load of wash. Pick up your liquor at the duty fee in the states to save a little cash. The wine cellar on Leeward is the best place for beer/wine/spirits. Turkes Head $35.00 a case. Not a bad beer!
The car was a Toyota. Met at the airport by Grace Bay Car Rental, given directions to the Graceway IGA for groceries and the liquor store and sent on our way. Made our stops and headed to the hotel. Found the hotel with no problems. The toyota is a low clearance car which will not make it to Malcolm Beach. The final mile has a large "hump" which a low car will NOT clear. You can upgrade to a higher car. We went to all the different beaches by dodging the potholes and taking it slow in the Toyota. But don't waste your time trying Malcolm Beach unless you have a jeep or Suv. Remember to always "giveway' (yield) to the cars in the roundabout. You'll get used to driving on the left, just be aware of your tendency to drift left to the side of the road.
Back to the resort: We were greeted and checked in quickly and escorted to our room. The resort is quiet. You NEVER have to get up early to reserve chairs. (I hate that) Our Maid Nancy came in daily to tidy up, make the bed and mop the floors. Our sheets were changed midweek. Beach towels were in the room, we washed and dried them everynite...no big deal. The hottub is hot (maybe too hot), the pool is clean and well maintained. Gardens are lovely. A security guard is patrolling in the evenings and always had a friendly hello. Our coffee pot was missing the carfe, but a call to the office had a whole new coffee maker delivered to the door. The beach is combed of seagrass every morning. It is windy there, but no more than up on Gracebay. If it's too windy on the beach, head over to the leeward side beaches. We visited a different beach everyday. Turtle Cove and Pirates Cove being our favorites. Ask Max for a beachchair to take with you. We had our cooler and the ice machine is in the restaurant. It is about 20 to 25 minutes into town, but the ride really doesn't seem long. The potcakes (stray dogs) will chase your car (or race your car) so watch out for them just as the paved road turns to gravel. (buy a t-shirt at the airport on your way home to support the potcakes)
Max was very friendly and helpful with advice and directions. Mike, the manager was on the premises, (delivered the coffee pot) but Max handles the desk and all your questions.
The WiFi was in and out. Actually more OUT then in, but we were just checking e-mails from home/kids and not working. We had a snack at the restaurant one nite, but never had a meal so I cannot comment on it. Other guests said the grouper was good.
The best snorkeling was Smith's beach near Turtle Cove. We saw Eagle rays and a Lionfish....yep a lionfish in the wild, in the Atlantic!!!! The reef at the Coral Gardens was crowded and roped off but ok.
We are really happy that we found Northwest Point Resort. No time schedule to keep, no blaring music or entertainment people asking me to learn to salsa or play volleyball. It is a great, laid back place to hang out or start your day to go exploring like we did. Star gazing there is incredible. We saw shooting stars every night. We are already picking dates for our return.
Things we would do different next trip:
1. Upgrade the car.
2. Pack less clothes.
3. Put suntan lotion on immediately to avoid that first day burn.
4. Wear beach shoes when wading out to the Pirates' Cave. The rocks going into the cave are rough on your feet.
5. I would Not go to the airport in Provo 2 plus hours before the flight. Clearing immigration and security was pretty quick on a Wednesday, and once you're in...you're in.
6. Remember there are NO beer/liquor sales on Sundays. Get it purchased on Saturday.
7. I would not mention Tripadvisor to Mike. I don't think he likes being mentioned in all the reviews, and doesn't appreciate being called "the Mike" of Tripadvisor fame.
8. I would stay for more than a week. This is probably the first vacation in years where I was NOT ready to go home. I could stay at Northwest Point forever.

Thank you for taking the time to post a wonderful informative review. I am certain all future guests to our resort will appreciate your comments. I am sorry you drove all the way out to Malcolm Beach and that we, I somehow missed the opportunity to provide you with directions to a very nice beach a much easier 5 minute drive from our resort and IMO one of the nicest on the Island including excellent snorkeling! Its also a nice place to go when it is windy on the resort side. Next time though!
Regarding the mention of my name on Trip Advisor. I do appreciate guests kind comments, but feel somewhat uncomfortable being singled out sometimes because our resort is made up of a small team of hard working employees some of whom work behind the scenes to make your stay more enjoyable.
BTW, our WiFi and internet issues are to be solved in the next week or so with the new addition of a fiber optics cable to our resort, yeah no more microwave link!
Thank you again for your informative review and see you next visit!

Let us first say that we were looking to be a bit more independent this time around. That is to say that we wanted a quiet place with full kitchen amenities and possibly laundry facilities. Lastly, we also wanted to be mobile on this island. We described these pre-requisites to the Turks and Caicos Tourism Authority rep who then provided us with a few suggested places.

The website for the resort package deal witha car from Grace Bay car rentals. This was an added bonus for us.

Upon arriving at the airport, we got the car and drove-up to the resort. My wife was watchful of my driving as I had to get used to driving on the left and deal with one roundabout after another as well as a pothole filled main road. Other tripadvisor writers have felt the resort to be far away. It did not seem so for us and the ride was fine once we figured out to take Blue Hills Road which then leads into the unpaved road to the resort.

The Resort

- Very quiet. We could hear the ocean from our room (garden view).

- The best and most comfortable beds we've had (better than most 4+ star hotels in Canada)

- The TV had plenty to watch or you could borrow movies from the front desk

- The locks all worked

- The place had a full kitchen AND washer dryer

- Solid safe in the room (we brought our camera equipment and it was large enough to lock-up most of it).

- Free courtesy cell phone that we could use while on the island.

- Very clean.

- We felt very safe.

- The staff was genuinely friendly, relaxed and helpful.

- The cleaning persons actually did our dishes (which we did not expect).

Nature

- Because of the location of the hotel being near a nature reserve we got to see beautiful bumblebee and ruby throated humming birds as well as an osprey with her baby, some blue herons and pelicans.

- Lots of butterflies

- Inside the atrium was a tree with bananas (yes we and other guest plucked them as they ripened).

- Secluded beach on the hotel that extents for miles in either direction.


Resort Restaurant

- Franko at the restaurant went the extra mile for us. Making us delicious breakfasts, lunches and dinner (see pics). Anyone not staying at the resort should at least make the trip down and have his jerk chicken and conch fritters with those caramelized bananas à la mode for dessert :)

- On our last day I was frantically searching for gifts to bring back. He presented me with one of his showcase conch shells to give to my folks. Above and beyond the call of NICE!

Beach

- The beach is more rustic (some seaweed and pollution further down near the point) than say the Grace Bay area. However it is extremely romantic and beautiful. Filled with sandbars you can walk on for up to a 1/4km into the ocean.

- Lack of light pollution allowed us to sit back on a lounge chair at night and stare into the stars with just a hint of reggae or jazz music from the restaurant in the background. It is generally more cosmopolitan in the Grace Bay area and hence a different kind of relaxing.

- Careful for walking carelessly on some areas on the beach, there was a pincushion tuxedo urchin I almost stepped on and some more granular (versus sandy) areas of beach further out.

- Not the best spot for snorkeling but I did do some. Coral Gardens off of Grace Bay was mind blowing snorkelers paradise for me. That said, Mike can show you 3 main areas within a 10-15 minute drive or 45 min hike where the reef is not roped off and the sea life is as good as Coral Gardens - but because of the isolated nature of these beaches, let the hotel staff know and if possible bring someone along for safe snorkeling.

Access to the Rest of the Island

- The resort is next to the Amraya Resort and both are further removed than the tip of resorts along Grace Bay. It is roughly a 30 min drive to the hotel strip in the Grace Bay area.

- Because of the location, we discovered the Blue Hills Road which has a slow, authentic Carribean flavor to it. There was a small marsh with pink flamingos, Horse Eye Jack's and the Conch Shack along the way to the IGA or Grace Bay.

- This road merges into Leeward Highway which would bring you to the other tip of the island in about 20 minutes (Conch Farm - which was an odd place to visit after munching a couple of these things and the ferry to North and Middle Caicos).

I just read through some of the most recent reviews of NWPR. This is our 3rd year at Northwest Point and again this year, we kiss the ground being so thankful we found this place! We try to go to another island or somewhere else, but we ask ourselves, "why" when we have all we want here? True, the ride into town is bumpy, and can be a little scary in terms of what we're used to at home, but it's only about 20 minutes to most anywhere you want to go. The IGA grocery has everything you need if you want to cook in your condo (GREAT kitchen!), but we come to Provo for the 5 star restaurants to eat dinner each night after a secluded, QUIET, time on the beach or pool-side where we sit on the farthest point of the island feeling like we're all by ourselves in the world. What a miracle these days! The grounds are GORGEOUS! and I can't imagine the comment about mold or bad rooms. They are so well-kept. These are all individually owned condos and the association very particular. Mike and Peter and all the staff are eager to give you the best experience. There is a restaurant on the property if you want to use it with very good food. You do have to have a rental car, but we actually enjoy the experience of driving around the island for a break from seclusion, and I'm telling you that you will NEVER find more options for fine dining than here! There are so many fine restaurants, that we would have to stay 2 months to get them all in! It is the most fantasy experience we could ask for. There is also some sight-seeing you can do, but we love the feel of our own little hide-away! Thank you NWPR for all you give us, and Provo, for being great hosts. Hope it stays this way. We will probaly be back if the country will continue to have us!
